*I am not able to accept new clients at this time for individual treatment. However, I am accepting people for group therapy. * I enjoy building relationships that facilitate the healing process - moving from just coping everyday to overcoming barriers in relationships, work, school and overall well-being through connection. I have experience working with adults and adolescents with persistent anxiety, depression and difficulty in attachment, often this is due to trauma. Additionally, I enjoy working with adolescents and their families to create relationships that work for all family members.

Amid the pressures of today's world, it is rare that we allow ourselves moments of stillness in which to reflect upon our lives, relationships, choices, and larger forces at play. These moments are paramount to bringing our lives into alignment with our priorities and ideals. My aim is to encourage the pause necessary for self-reflection. This pause allows you to see yourself more clearly and to articulate your most fundamental questions. Through the clarifying process of self-reflection, change becomes possible.

Our thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, relationships and experiences shape us emotionally, physically and energetically. By gently and compassionately exploring these, both healthy and undermining, new choices become possible. I offer principles from Behavioral Cognitive Therapy including guided meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, cognitive restructuring, progressive relaxation, and mindfulness. When reinforced with practice, these techniques help to increase wellness and reduce suffering and anxiety. You don't need to know the problem or the solution to begin. You only need to want something to change.

Whether you're really hurting or simply seeking personal growth, I'm happy to help. How I practice is mainly cognitive-behavioral, but I also draw from nonviolent communication, feminist therapy, and anti-racist multicultural counseling. I work with people who have a fairly broad range of concerns (see list to the right). I work with adults and older teens; individuals, couples, and groups. I especially enjoy helping clients with a stigmatized identity overcome both internalized and external oppression. I welcome transgender and other queer folk; Muslims, immigrants, and racial and ethnic "minority" members; and activists for social and environmental justice.

I am a supportive and kink-affirming therapist and my goal is to help couples address concerns with their communication, create intimacy and connection, reignite chemistry and yes, provide sex education, because life should be pleasure-filled. I've helped countless clients become comfortable within their own skin: learning how to ask for what they want to get their needs met both in life and the bedroom too. I am an LCSW-R and I specialize in both couples counseling, behavioral intervention and sex therapy. There is nothing taboo or off limits when it comes to therapy: I want you to bring your WHOLE self when meeting with me.

Treatment is tailored to the needs and preferences of the client. Some situations call for deep introspection, others for charting one's way through a predicament, and still others for behavioral or other targeted techniques. I have tools for all of these.

It takes immense courage to embrace therapy; you should be proud of taking this step. There are as many reasons to seek help as there are challenges in life. Perhaps you are noticing recurring tension, pain, or unpleasant sensations in your body? Or are you functioning well at work, but noticing that it’s difficult to connect to a deeper sense of belonging and meaning? Do traumatic memories keep lingering at the surface despite your efforts to put them behind you? Have you already sought help, spent many sessions venting about your worries and traumas, but wound up more frustrated and triggered than you were before?

My first experience with therapy, was as the client. After surviving a traumatic event, I sought help from a therapist. Therapy proved so helpful, it was then, that my passion grew. While most of my experience has been in private practice providing individual therapy, I have worked in a county mental health clinic, an inpatient psychiatric setting and a residential group home. At the core of distress, we may find some form of unresolved shame, guilt, trauma, abuse or loss. I am here to provide "a safe place" to process those hurts, while helping you increase self-awareness and gain skills to lead a more fulfilling life.

I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Seeing a therapist -- this is not an easy step you’re considering. Putting your most vulnerable thoughts and feelings in the hands of a stranger takes some courage and a bit of a leap of faith. Whether you’re feeling anxious or depressed, or are in a troubled marriage or relationship, or struggling with issues that have no label, you’re probably feeling stuck. Stuck is when people call a therapist. It’s after they have tried everything: waiting for things to get better, talking to friends or relatives, or reading self-help books.

What type of Ithaca mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ithaca?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
